Without seating a fire pit is useless. After all, what do we do with fire pits? We sit around them and enjoy the ambient light in darkness and the heat in the cool evening. If you need seating for your fire pit, whether for your backyard or camp, here is a great collection of fire pit seating ideas - includes DIY options, benches, logs, patio furniture and camping furniture.
I hate to say it, but I’m a stickler when it comes to seating.
I don’t like benches, stools, logs, backless chairs of any kind.
I like overstuffed, big furniture that I can sink into and relax.
That’s why I spent a fortune on my camping chair that goes with me to the beach or anywhere I’ll be sitting outside. It’s also why we have large plastic Adirondack designed chairs in our yard.
Interestingly, many people who build fire pits in their yard incorporate some sort of bench seating, which is good for accommodating a lot of people and saves the hassle of moving chairs to the area, but it’s not great for comfort.
But my preferences are just that… mine. That’s why this collection includes all types of fire pit seating ideas.
I organized this into DIY fire pit seating ideas, patio furniture, camping furniture and wrap it up with some unique seating that’s not all that common.
There are 4 types of DIY fire pit seating options. They are benches, rocks, logs and stairs. Here they are.
Because benches are the most common DIY option, we include a wide variety of designs and ideas.
Rocks and Boulders
While you could sit on inflatable camping furniture, it might not be the best option if a stray spark strikes it… that’s the end of your seat. Below we set out the different types of seating for campfire.
